[AMBER] AMD GPU install problems

Hi everyone,

I am trying to install Amber22 on the Frontier supercomputer at Oak Ridge National Lab. The compute nodes are composed of AMD Optimized 3rd Gen EPYC CPUs and AMD MI250X GPUs. I can install AmberTools 23/Amber22 without GPU support without any problems (and the install passes the test suite). However, I run into problems when trying to install with GPU support.

Iím following the AMD recipe found here: https://ambermd.org/GPUSupport.php


When I try to install, I first get an error message related to nab2c, mpinab2c, and rule_parse (they arenít being built). It is our understanding nab2c is no longer part of AmberTools, so I tried dropping it from the install. I did this by editing line #6 of amber22_src/cmake/RunnablePrograms.cmake:

# original

#set(EXECUTABLES_TO_IMPORT ucpp utilMakeHelp nab2c mpinab2c rule_parse)



# dropping references to nab2c, mpiab2c rule_parse

set(EXECUTABLES_TO_IMPORT ucpp utilMakeHelp)

(if this is a bad idea, please let me know)

When I do this, the install makes more progress, but then I run into library errors. Hereís the first error (which consequently cascades into additional library error until the install fails):
Performing C SOURCE FILE Test CMAKE_HAVE_LIBC_PTHREAD failed with the following output:

Hereís my module load (providing some info on the environment):

craype-network-ofi
perftools-base/22.12.0
xpmem/2.5.2-2.4_3.45__gd0f7936.shasta

hsi/default
DefApps/default
rocm/5.3.0
cmake/3.23.2
boost/1.79.0
zlib/1.2.11
bzip2/1.0.8

Has anyone else run into these problems installing Amber22 on systems with AMD GPUs? (or, has anyone recently had success with an AMD GPU installation)?

Please let me know whatever additional information I can provide that would be useful.

Thanks very much for any assistance!
